Former Political Prisoners describe RI as the “University of Life” for it is there where strategies for a future society based on tolerance; respect and non-racialism were nurtured and implemented. RIM as an educational site recognizes education at all levels as a critical tool for addressing virtually all global problems relevant to sustainable development.
